Jamie Laing and Sophie Habboo got married in an official ceremony at Chelsea Town Hall, London, on 14 April. And now the couple’s attention is fixed on their larger wedding taking place in Spain on 19 May. The former “Made In Chelsea” costars are going to be surrounded by their friends and family under the stunning backdrop of the Mediterranean for their second time tying the knot, and amongst the plans for food, flowers, and dresses, there is one element that they’ve been thinking about in detail: consummating their marriage.
The reality stars spoke to GK Barry on the “Saving Grace” podcast about their Spanish nuptials and talk quickly turned to wedding night sex. “We are going to have real passionate sex,” Habboo said, to which Laing excitedly respond: “Are we going to?” But the realities of the day soon put paid to any between-the-sheets action. “I think getting married there is a lot going on,” Laing admitted. “It’s also a really strange and weird thing. You have all your friends and family there, you have to walk down the aisle, you have to do a dance, you have to do speeches, you have to stand up and say all these different things. Everything is really hectic that by the end of the night you’re just knackered.”
And it appears that Haboo was relieved at Laing’s honesty, too. “Thank god you’re saying that! I think we will be quite tired that night,” she said. The conversation then highlighted the weirdness that everyone is invested in what happens on a wedding night when the party is over and the expectations of sex. She added that it’s odd “when everyone says to you the next day ‘how was last night?’ and we go, ‘we fell asleep…'”.
Following the couple’s intimate London ceremony, fans were quick to spot that Laing’s best friend, and podcast cohost, Spencer Matthews wasn’t pictured as a guest. It turns out he, and his wife Vo gue Williams, weren’t actually invited. “Sophie looked absolutely magnificent, we were absolutely thrilled for them, but we also did not know it was happening because we were not invited,” he revealed on the “Spencer and Vogue” podcast.
“I’m not here to b*tch about my best friend but there’s been some serious miscommunication from him,” he continued. “I just want to set the record straight. I’m not here to whinge. I was not invited to this part of Jamie’s wedding, and neither was Vogue.” However, Matthews will be at the Spanish wedding, although Williams has work clashes so is unable to attend.
While whatever happens during Laing and Habboo’s wedding night is none of our business, we do hope they’ll share snaps of the big day because we cannot get enough of their wedding spam.
